He staked out a place where the view would be good
To watch you fall flat trying to walk in his shoes
And laughter it skipped through the trees end to end
"It's just a joke, get over it friend"

Getting sick in swimming pools, your glory in disgrace
What you did to impress him, how he laughed in your face
And zero, she sat on the tip of your tongue
Had plenty to say but your mouth had gone numb

You were hoping he'd get his someday
You were hoping it'd hurt the same way, how was that wrong?

He'd lay out your faults with unusual charm
"You're weak" as he looked at the scars on your arm
And his lips curled up in a smile end to end
"It's ok to cry, I'm here for you friend"

You were hoping he'd get his someday
You were hoping it'd hurt the same way, how was that wrong?

You laid awake nights, your head burned, fists tight
You prayed you'd be there the day he got his

The word to police was he died in his sleep
The reverend's reunion 'tween shepherd and sheep
And the church bells ring but you don't hear the sound
And you're pushed aside as they carry him out...
